You're a tasty one, Mr. Grinch!



We thought it would be fun to make the Grinch from a quesadilla. We used 2 spinach tortillas, black beans, shredded cheese, and a piece from a yellow pepper.

We cut out our Grinch head shape from the spinach tortilla using kitchen scissors. Cut 1 and then use that one as a guide for the other one. We added black beans and shredded cheese on the inside of the tortillas and heated that until the cheese melted. I had a yellow pepper that will be used for another recipe so we just cut the eyes out of that. You could just use sour cream if you do not have a yellow pepper. We added cooked black beans to make the pupils, mouth, and nose. We cut out the hair with our spinach tortilla scraps.

Super easy and the boys loved it!!

Give the Gift of Lunch!



We made this fun Gift Sandwich with Christmas Tree Chips and it's so simple to make! We used 2 pieces of bread, peanut butter and jelly, 1 red fruit roll up, 1 spinach tortilla, kosher salt, and cooking spray.

We cut our bread into a square. We spread peanut butter & jelly on the inside. We cut our red fruit roll up with kitchen scissors to look like a ribbon and bow. We cut tree shapes out of the spinach tortilla using tree cookie cutters. Place the trees on a cookie sheet and spray both sides with cooking spray. Sprinkle with kosher salt and bake at 350 for 8 minutes (we did 10 min. and ours were just a tad bit over done).

My boys loved this! You could make any kind of sandwich and the tree chips are a great way to get the kids to gobble up some spinach!

Corn Turkey's on a Stick!



We made these Turkey Corn Dogs the other night and my boys thought they turned out really cute! We used Morning Star veggie dogs, cheese, pickles, & ketchup.

We cut a slice of american cheese with our kitchen scissors and rounded off the edges to look like feathers (you could use mustard). We added our ketchup under that. We sliced a couple of pickles and added those under the ketchup. We placed our turkey dog under the pickles. We used pickles, cheese, and ketchup to make the face.

This is a fun and simple lunch or dinner for the kids to help out with!

We hope that all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

A Pilgrim Lunch!



We created this Pilgrim Lunch the other day and it's so easy to make! We used 2 slices of dark german wheat bread, 1 slice of deli turkey, 1 slice of provolone cheese, 1 raisin, and 1 tie dye fruit roll up.

We cut a circle out of 1 piece of bread for the pilgrims head. Our turkey fit right on top. We cut out the other piece of bread into a hat shape. We cut a strip from our cheese and put that on the hat. We cut out the buckle, hair, and eye brows using the yellow from our multi colored fruit roll up. We cut out the mouth with the red part of the fruit roll up. We cut out two small circles from the cheese for the eyes and cut 1 raisin in half for the pupils.

The kids loved it and it's a fun way to talk with the kids about the Pilgrims!

Give the Gift of S'mores!



We love to make anything out of s'mores and thought it would be cute to make these super easy Gift S'mores Pops! These would be great to take to a school party. It takes no time at all using edible color spray and they turned out so cute!

We used graham crackers, square s'mores marshmallows (you could use large marshmallows cut in half), chocolate cookie frosting, color spray, licorice fruit candy, and lollipop sticks.

Take 2 full graham crackers and lay them onto wax paper. Spray some of the green and red and let dry. Break them apart. Poke lollipop sticks through 2 of the square marshmallows first. Turn the colored graham crackers over and squeeze on some chocolate cookie frosting. Add the marshmallow pops onto the chocolate frosted graham crackers and let dry.


We found this licorice candy at Walgreens called Whip Rips. That is what we used for our ribbon. You could just use Twizzler pull a parts if you can not find the Rips Whips...


Pull out the green and red licorice candies and tie them around the colored graham crackers into a bow. Here is a side view...


Here are my little boys with there S'more Gift Pops...


They were so excited to get their S'more Gifts and couldn't wait to gobble them up!


Linking up to these awesome link parties...please check them out!

Corn on the Cobb for Breakfast!



We thought of this fun and easy Corn on the Cobb Breakfast a couple of weeks ago. We cut out 2 Eggo waffles with kitchen scissors in the shape of a corn cob. We cut our green grapes in half and added them around the botton and bottom sides to look like a corn husk. That's it!

This is so simple to make and a fun breakfast for the kids to make!!

Gobble Gobble up some Turkey Fruit!


We made this fun Fruit Turkey the other day and my boys just loved it! We used 1 green apple, pineapple, manderin oranges, green grapes, dark grapes, edible eyes, 1 cherry, and tooth picks.

We cut the botton off of our apple so it would stand up staight. Save the cut off part to make the wings and head.


We poked 4 tooth picks on the back side of the apple. We cut off pieces of the manderin oranges and pineapple. We added our dark grapes first. Then we added the oranges, green grapes, and pineapple.


We cut out a head and wings with the saved apple slice that we cut off the bottom. We poked a tooth pick in the front towards the top and attached the cut out apple for the head. Attach the eyes, orange nose, and wings with peanut butter. We cut a piece of a cherry for the waddle (you could use a strawberry or fruit roll up). We cut the end of a manderin orange for the feet.

Here is the side view...


We had a blast making this silly Turkey and it's a great way to get the kids to eat lots of fruit!!

How to make The Grinch using a Gourd for a fun Christmas Craft!


How the Gourd Stole Christmas!

My boys went to Fall Family Fun Days at The Rock Ranch here in Georgia last weekend and came home with a couple of gourds. My 8 year old ran in the house with his gourd and said he wanted to make his into the Grinch. I thought that was such a great idea and that's exactly what we did!

This Grinch Gourd is SO easy to make! We used black and yellow felt and a small/baby santa hat for his.

We cut our eyes out with the yellow felt. We cut the pupils, eye brows, mouth, and nose out with the black felt. I had the felt with the sticky back, but you could attach with glue. You could also even use yarn, foam, or construction paper!

My 5 year old wanted his to have hair so we used green pipe cleaner for his hair. I actually didn't have green pipe cleaner so I sprayed white pipe cleaner with green edible color spray and let that dry. We just bent it to look like his hair and attached it on the top with a little bit of glue.


We put them in a couple of small cups that we had and printed out labels from our computer. The boys got to pick out what they wanted it to say.


I think this idea from my 8 year old is fantastic and they turned out so cute! Here are my boys with their Grinch Gourds...


If you live in GA you should definitely check out The Rock Ranch. The last Fall Fun Days is next Saturday. It is so worth going to and I am pretty sure it's only 12 bucks to get in. Open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. each Saturday, guests will enjoy themed entertainment plus Train Rides, Hay Rides, a Petting Zoo, Zip Lines, Pony Rides, the Pumpkin Cannon, Tiny Town and much more! My boys had a blast!!!
